Brides of India - Nagaland

Brides of India - Nagaland

Brides of India - Nagaland

Nagaland is one of the smallest states of India. Its people believe only in gods of two dimensions, namely, god of creation and god of earth. It traditionally has a dominant agricultural tradition and its cultures and rituals are mostly based on that only. Ethnicity in Nagaland is a medley of various tribes and sub tribes living in the state itself. Earlier women formed the weaker sections of society, but now they are gradually beginning to participate in various aspects. Marriage in Nagaland is more of courtship than negotiation. Girls sleep in the house of an elderly woman, who was named, Zuki, to learn spinning, weaving, folklores and tales, manners etc. Women were expected to be obedient and humble. Naga people followed exogamous principle and endogamy was a serious crime, therefore marriage was done with parents’ consent.

Naga bride wears a quarter meter long, mechala, a red colored wrap around accompanied with a shawl having blue stripes. A same color band is tied on her waist, with its ends hanging down. The design of the shawl denotes the social statue of the wearer. It is a thick woolen cloth and a beautiful flower border is weaved with a white thread. Her ornaments are made of coral pieces with chunky bangles reminiscent of the age old wars and sacrifices. She has made a low bun resting on her neck at the back with white feathers attached to it, covering the head.

This paper machie doll of Naga bride is very artistically designed, with accurate curves, shape and lines. It is one of the rare pieces in terms of its beauty and sharpness.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
Thank you for your wonderful service and amazing book selection. We are long time customers and have never been disappointed by your great store. Thank you and we will continue to shop at your store
